    27 Things To Give Yourself A Facial At Home

    It's called quarantine self-care, look it up.

    1. First things first, a ~spa day~ headband so your hair doesn't get in the way of all the fun and relaxation that's about to ensue. Welcome to your at-home facial oasis!

    2. Laura Mercier Conditioning Cleansing Oil, which contains a blend of seven natural oils to get every ounce of makeup, sunscreen, and debris off your face — the first step to any high-quality facial. And take this opportunity to really slow down and massage this bb into your face 'cause you deserve it!

    3. A water-based cleanser like the oh-so-gentle Belif Aqua Bomb Cleanser to make sure your face is totally ready to receive all of the treatments and products you have planned. And it doesn't hurt that this jelly-like cleanser lathers/foams very nicely for that spa-like feel.

    4. A Foreo Luna Mini 3 cleansing brush that'll make your cleanser work even harder and make any evidence of dirt, oil, and sweat disappear without a trace — thanks to gentle but powerful t-sonic pulsations and extra-soft bristles/touchpoints.

    5. A facial steamer to fully open up your sleepy (and perhaps a little too visible) pores so any treatments you apply afterwards can oh-so-deeply penetrate for maximum benefits/effect. There's a reason why all facials start with some good ol' steam.

    6. A squeezeful of Wishful Yo Glow Enzyme Scrub, which is a great choice for a sensitive skin–safe exfoliator that doesn't leave skin irritated. In fact, thanks to pineapple and papaya enzymes, BHAs, and AHAs it'll leave your skin feeling quite the opposite — soft and smooth as heck!

    7. Neogen Real Ferment Micro Essence to start adding some much-needed hydrating back into your skin. Its fragrance-free formula contains 93% naturally fermented ingredients — including 17% birch juice and 9% rice extracts for that sweet, sweet illumination from within.

    8. A handy Neutrogena light therapy acne spot treatment for helping speed up the reduction and healing of stubborn breakouts — thanks to a mighty combo of blue (kills bacteria) and red light (reduces inflammation). No messy products, no worries!

    9. Or a hydrocolloid acne patch to absorb all that oil and gunk from your blackheads and whiteheads and help flatten/heal your zits faster — while also preventing any outside infection and bacteria (which is why your zits form in the first place!). Easy peasy.

    10. A jade (or rose quartz or opal) roller that'll definitely soothe your skin — especially if you pop it in a fridge beforehand for an extra cooling effect. Some specific benefits include helping stimulate collagen production, increase elasticity, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

    11. A nourishing facial oil (from Youth to the People or The Ordinary, for example) to pair with your roller for ~easier sliding~ and to help push said oil into your skin, so it penetrates better and deeper!

    12. A pair of facial cooling globes similar to the ones facialists love using, because they're so dang relaxing — well, aside from the initial point of contact, but it's so, so worth the soothing, puffiness-reducing, and circulation-stimulating benefits! Roll away, peeps!

    13. A mini skincare fridge so all of your tools and products are properly stored and cooled for immediate use and, most importantly, not stuck next to those week-old veggies and who know what else you have in your actual fridge — no judgment. Plus, how CUTE is it?

    14. A Cosrx blackhead-removing kit made up of three full steps that'll ensure those buggers crowding your nose are banished — no painful extractions needed!

    15. Pixi Glow Tonic, an affordable fan-favorite toner that exfoliates, brightens, and smoothes skin with gentle ingredients like aloe vera, ginseng, and botanical extracts — and it's paraben- and alcohol-free, so it'll leave your skin feeling good well beyond your facial.

    16. A pretty pair of cooling gel eye masks that are basically like tiny redness- and puffiness-reducing pillows for your peepers! Consider these an upgrade from cucumber slices.

    17. A FaceTory sheet mask subscription box if you sheet mask so often, you need ample variety to keep things fun 'n' interesting. After all, each mask is like a mini facial in itself! Say hello to dewy, recharged skin delivered (contact-less) right to your doorstep! ✨

    18. A Stacked Skincare microneedling roller that'll — with the help of 540 teeny stainless-steel needles — stimulate skin repair, treat hyperpigmentation, acne scars, fine lines, and uneven tone. Pair with your fave serum for skincare magic!

    19. A chic vibrating face-lifter with sonic technology that'll mimic an actual massage (without you needing to knead away) for visible sculpting and contouring, and a beautiful glow only a totally relaxed and pampered face is capable of showing off.

    20. A Charlotte Tilbury clay mask that'll purify your pores and improve collagen production/skin elasticity, all without leaving your skin feeling high, dry, 'n' tight like traditional clay formulas (which I personally am not a fan of). Spanish clay, rosehip oil, and frangipani flower all come together to deliver that perfect balance.

    21. An Aesop pulse-point therapy roller infused with ginger root, lavender, and geranium you can apply directly onto your neck, temples, and behind the ears (and wrists!) for a little dose of relief from stress, nausea, and...the news, tbh.

    22. A microdermabrasion exfoliator tool that'll be worth the high price tag once you see immediate and consistent results — i.e. outer-layer exfoliation, less discoloration, scarring, sun damage, and wrinkles. It also comes with four intensity levels and two different crushed diamond tips (one for normal and one for sensitive skin), so you can tailor your own treatment.

    23. A powerful (or should we say powderful?) yet gentle Amorepacific Treatment Enzyme Peel with natural papaya enzymes that'll break down dead surface skin cells to reveal smooth AF skin, while green tea extract and allantoin help soothe skin.

    24. And if you just don't feel like putting together a facial routine yourself, try a Soko Glam–curated K-Beauty Starter Set that'll arm you with 10 best-selling products so you have everything you need to clean, moisturize, and treat your skin.

    25. A generous dollop of Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask to seal all of that good moisture in and boost your skin's radiance overnight with a magical combination of soothing watermelon extract, hydrating hyaluronic acid, and super gentle AHAs — so you can wake up with glowing, soft skin! Are you a baby? You'll definitely look like one.

    26. Or, if it's daytime and/or you just want something a smidge lighter, a dollop of Belif Aqua Bomb, which has a ridiculously satisfying ~water burst~ formula (aka its gel texture disperses into water droplets you can feel as it's being rubbed into your skin) and a blend of apothecary herbs to calm down normal, oily, and combination skin types and smooth everything over without leaving any residue or unnecessarily heavy texture behind.

    27. And for the final touch, a Sweet Chef Lip Sleeping Mask that'll ensure your pout stays as smooth and soft as a baby's bum, thanks to antioxidant-rich and natural-AHA-filled sugarcane, rice brain (a clean alternative to petrolatum), and moisturizing vitamin E.

    Yeah, home is where it's at — amirite or AMIRITE?
